In spite of the fact that there are still a few months from the market opening of the all-fresh Ford Focus RS that made its world debut last July at the London Motor Show, Ford's Austrian arm has made available lots of fresh and significant details for the sport hatchback as well as initial pricing and modified performance numbers. 

When Ford presented the vehicle in London, the firm claimed that the Focus RS with its 300 hp 2.5-liter turbocharged inline 5-cylinder engine could accelerate from 0 to 100km/h (62 mph) in less than 6 seconds and acquire a maximum speed of 260 km/h (162 mph) or even more.

The firm's most current evaluations say that the Focus RS sprints from standstill to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and attains top speed of 263 km/h or 164 mph.

The swiftest European Ford production vehicle ever will be offered in Austria beginning summer 2009 and will have a price tag of €39,000 or $50,800 from the present exchange rates.

Relatively, the 225 hp Focus ST which acts as the foundation for the RS, begins from €29,980 in Austria.

The fresh Focus RS will be available with a selection of three surface colors including "Performance Green", "Indianapolis Blue" and "Frost White" each with a matching choice of blue or green color interior. On the other hand, a full black leather option will be offered for all three surface color finishes.
